Charles Eugene “Gene” Remington died Jan. 4, 2018.

He was born Feb. 1, 1936, in Sedro Woolley, Washington, to Ralph and Oral Remington. The family started a dairy business in the Skagit Valley, moved to Tacoma when World War II began and then bought a farm in South Prairie. In 1954 he entered the U.S. Navy and was stationed in Florida with his first wife Louise. He was proud of his service on the last diesel powered submarine, USS Thornback. Three years later the family returned to the Northwest and he had varied careers, including working at a trout hatchery for the Game Department, beaver trapping, working for U.S. Fish and Wildlife and the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department. Ultimately, he worked as a “fish cop” with the Washington State Fisheries Patrol where he spent 25 years doing what he loved, being outdoors.

He remarried in 1965 to Joyce Silvernail. They moved to Camano Island where they lived for 51 years. After retirement he traveled, spent summers working in a cannery in Alaska and spent winters in Arizona. He joined the North American Wildlife Officers Association and had the opportunity to travel to several conventions in the U.S. and Canada.

He is survived by daughter Robin Magorty (Brian) and his sister Lois Erath (Gary). He was preceded in death by his wife Joyce.

A celebration of life will take place at a later date. Donations may be made to the Kidney Foundation or American Heart Association.
